It is no secret that in the use of technology in everyday life, pupils are very knowledgeable and always have new and innovative apps and hardware at their fingertips. A Digital Leader is a pupil in a school who possesses this knowledge and is able to apply the use of the iPad across a wide range of areas within a school. They work with the management team in a school to ensure that there is support for teachers, pupils, parents and the wider community in using technology in a positive way to enhance learning and teaching.

Our Digital Leaders programme has become incredibly popular with hundreds of Digital Leaders appointed in schools across the country. These pupils are helping to lead learning & teaching with the iPad across the school – so it’s time to celebrate their creativity and innovation by inviting them to our Digital Leader Labs. These labs are being held at The Odyssey in Belfast on the 26th and 28th October.

If you have yet to implement Digital Leaders in your school or are looking for tips to get started then look no further. We have you covered. We have helped to implement Digital Leaders in schools in both Northern Ireland and Scotland and with new schools signing up regularly, the number of digital leaders in school is becoming more and more common.

Once you have your Leaders selected, we can get the following up and running for you:

  • Supply of digital leader uniform badges
  • Supply of iTeach Digital Leaders certificates – which can be provided at a school assembly
  • Lanyard style ID badges
  • One hour DL training in school for the Leaders
  • Help and support creating an in-school Digital Leaders Blog
  • Posters that can be placed around the school to advertise the DL services
